About The Project | Tocante El Proyecto
|On the occasion of the run-up to the November 4, 2008 U.S. Presidential election, Chora, Self-Help Graphics (SHG), and Casa Del Tunel:Art Center (CDT) are teaming up with two-dozen artists to produce posters about what the consider to be the key North American political issues of the day. Each of the three studios will select eight artists to create the works.
Printing will take place at the venerable Self-Help Graphics in East Los Angeles, at Casa Del Tunel, a new arts and culture center in Tijuana, Mexico. The concept for the project, as well as the support, comes from Chora, an initiative of the Annenberg Foundation.
Posters for this non-partisan project will be exhibited in the weeks prior to the election at least at two locations: Underspring and Casa Del Tunel:Art Center.
Chora aims to support the intangibles that precede creativity.
